A5 – Primenest® 2 Fact Sheet

ABS Contoured Base

Extra security against pelvic deterioration
  • A neutral seating position – Ensures that the client’s legs are positioning securely with the troughs preventing possible pelvic deterioration
  • The base is cut out at the rear of the base relieving pressure in the sacral area for increased comfort.

The composite foam pad is constructed from viscoelastic foam bonded to a high quality base foam, specifically designed with a rounded leading edge offering additional comfort to the user. The pressure relieving properties makes Primenest® 2 effective as a wheelchair cushion.

The specific combination of viscoelastic foam used in the production of PrimeNest® 2 enables a high degree of envelopment with the stability of the hips enhanced further by the contoured base.

The XSensor® Pressure Mapping system shows excellent pressure distribution and client immersion with PrimeNest® 2 (see image).
